Thanks for the explanation Phantasm. I believe I've cut off the page file in XP Pro or at least have in the past before I reformatted, because I have a good bit of memory. Or maybe it was the virtual memory, I'm not sure. I tend to keep things pretty clean on my computer so I don't really have this issue, but I do see where other's computers might become slow and fragmented because of an unattended page file that gets very large. As for the CD layout issue, I tend to keep all my downloads on my comp in my media partition, because I have plenty of space. Again, I do see where this is handy for people with smaller hard drives who download tons of music or movies.
